IAT Departures 1993

Hi chaps,

Following on from the 'hanging down' arrivals I did for 91 and 93, it's time for the 'tucking up' departures I went for in 93. Glad I did.
Bit of a cloudy one, but lack of quality lighting was made up by a right old mixture of types......emphasis on the 'old'.

These are the only departures from me. For some unknown reason, didn't do another western end Monday until 2002.....and most of the magic was gone.
We will never see these times again like the early/mid 90s brought, mixing the cold war types with an eastern european influx. So it's good to share and dribble.

First up, Snoopy

USAFE F-15C.....bit more common or garden, but still great

Belgian Alpha Jets.....gotta love multiple take-offs

...especially when it's Swiss AF Hunters near their swansong

An admission.....I forgot to add this arrival on the last post......Luftwaffe Canberra and Alpha Jet
ImageIMG_5204 by Rupert Kelley, on Flickr

The 'piece of the resistance' (French).......was worth going just for this.......Russian AF Tu-95 Bear (like you need telling...)
ImageIMG_5205 by Rupert Kelley, on Flickr

It sat here for around half an hour.....was a terrible hardship to take :biggrin:
ImageIMG_5206 by Rupert Kelley, on Flickr

The (yummy in itself) support act.......Russian AF Il-78 tanker
ImageIMG_5207 by Rupert Kelley, on Flickr

Having seen, heard and felt quite enough of this one for one day.....could only just be bothered to take another one of it...... :smile:

That's all folks.......C+C always welcome.
Only photos of photos, so will never be in focus. Try not to short-circuit your laptop with the drool, thanks.

Happy snapping chaps,

Rupe, the other Mr Bear
